As I was setting up my Nokia Lumia 820 I ran across an issue that could easily be fixed with an update problem was my phone was not telling me it was available for it. The solution was forcing it to update…but how? In the official Nokia Support Discussions I found this page that has a bunch of useful updates that your Windows Phone 8 device may not have.

There have been a number of threads reporting that users have been unable to see Nokia application updates, hours or even days later. Unfortunately, there is no way to force the Windows Phone Store to force to check for updates manually. This has presented a problem for the Nokia app updates, as they are Nokia-exclusive and cannot be searched for in the Store.
However, there is a solution with QR codes, and the steps to update Nokia apps for Windows Phone 8 are provided below. The QR codes are provided in the links below as Attachments that you can click on quite simply:
1. Press the Search hardware button on your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 Device and tap on Vision.
2. Hold the camera viewfinder up to the screen to focus on the QR codes provided below.
3. If successful, a small thumbnail of the QR code along with a description of a web link will appear on screen.
4. Tap the web link and it will take you to the Store to update the Nokia app.
The QR codes are for the following applications that have been provided in the Store by Nokia:
